Bite Sized Licks | DESCENDING LEGATO LICK | With Guitar Tab

Manipulating a Mixolydian 3-note per string scale shape to use as a natural minor (or Aeolian) legato run, descending across all 6 strings on the guitar. We resolve the legato run on the second note of the Mixolydian, thus giving it the natural minor sound and/or tone. You can obviously experiment with resolving on different notes to change the tone and feel of the descending legato exercise.

Guitar tab is shown on screen where we practice the legato exercise in the key of C# minor. There are other guitar examples in other keys shown up and down the neck and you can improvise wherever you like all over the neck and in all music keys.

There is an on-screen diagram showing the Mixolydian 3-note per string scale and of course, guitar tab or tablature showing the actual legato run for you to see and practice.

You may be familiar with this particular legato run and this video is for all those hard rocking amigos and amigas out there! 🙂

Rock on brothers and sisters! 🙂
